Forge is a two player game played on a NxM square board. I will consider here a 8x6 board.
There is a ZRF to play Forge with Zillions. I made some experiments with Zillions and it seems that Forge is a win for the 1st player (I have no proof!). The 3x4 board is a win in 7 turns for the 1st player. With a 5x4 board, the first player wins in 14 turns...
The last move from White was c2-c1! and now White wins in 5 turns. Can you find the winning sequence?
Black must move
d1-a4, then d6-e5, d5-d6, e6-d5, a1-d4
